“So cunningly and playfully constructed that it feels like a gift” - THE GUARDIAN ****

I Wish I Was Lonely is a participatory show about contactability.
A show in which the audience commit to leaving their phones on.
A show investigating what it means to participate in communication – or not.
There will be poems, there will be stories and there will be conversation.

I Wish I Was Lonely is a show from Fringe-First winners Hannah Jane Walker and Chris Thorpe
that asks how much of ourselves we’ve given up to the new God in our pocket.
